Hello! I got tired of waiting for things to bloom so I took matters into my own hands.
You know those sticks from my yard that had hearts hanging off them for Valentines Day? Well, they’ve bloomed cute flowers in cheerful colors! Amazing but true!
They had help from me, of course! I made some paper flowers from tissue paper and pipe cleaners. I didn’t take any photos of how I made them since I did it last night while watching a few episodes of "The Tudors” on Netflix. But here’s a good link in case you want to try it. Ehow - Tissue Paper Flowers (I just made mine smaller).
They’re easy to make and I just hooked the ends of the pipe cleaners around the sticks. You can see one sticking out in the photo below – oops LOL!
One day (soon I hope), spring will finally come to Georgia and the rest of the U.S. Hasn’t this been THE longest winter ever!
I know this project isn't for everyone, but it puts a smile on my face!
Have a super weekend everyone!
